    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Family Video (Green Bay, WI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    After submitting an application for employment I was called by the store manager for an in-person interview. When I arrived approximately 10 minutes early, the manager was not ready and we began later than the scheduled time. The interview took place in the middle of the busy store with very basic questions. I was invited back for a skills test. The testing also took place in the middle of the busy store. The store manager proctored the test with multiple interruptions. I was called to complete an interview with the district manager. There was some difficulty scheduling this as his presence in the store was very limited. The district manager asked me almost identical questions as the store manager (again through an interview taking place in the middle of the busy store).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Family Video in July 2014.

    Interview

    I had to call a few times to actually talk to a manager about my application, then I was offered an interview. I was interviewed by an assistant manager. She seemed very nice and laid back. Also, easy going. The interview took place in the middle of the store, and I thought that was a bit strange. I was expecting something more private. The questions were just about what I like to do in my free time, what I'm going to school for, and why I want to work at Family Video. She said that the hiring process included a comprehension test. She said she was doing call backs on Monday. It's Monday

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Family Video (Highland, IN) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The hiring process was a little bit of a challenge. The initial 1:1 interview was fine along with the second 1:1 interview with the District Manager. The difficult part came in the timed test that was just basic math and problem solving skills. I found it interesting that they required this as part of the process but it was able to weed out people with poor basic math skills and those that can't think on their feet.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview questions were basic questions... the hard part was the written test.   Answer Question

    Clerk Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Family Video (Peoria, IL) in September 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process for Family Video has three parts. The first is just a general interview with a store manager. At this interview they ask you to tell them about yourself, as well as several situational questions. The second part is a test of your math and organizational skills. The only part I remember is the part about alphabetizing. The test isn't very difficult but I do remember it being time consuming. Each section is timed and I had a few blank spots on some of the math sections by the end of the time. You only have to score a 70% to pass the test if I'm not mistaken. The third interview is with the District Manager. This person manages several stores and will ask a lot of situational questions as well. They will also explain to you a little more about what working in the store is like. I was offered a job at my third interview but this might not always be the case.

    Basic common sense will get you the initial interview. If you've had jobs that focus on customer service, it's almost a guarantee. The interview is laid back, and serves more as a chance to see your personality, so don't be fake. be how you would be normally
